Independent Study Program

2017-2018 School Year

Journey School is now accepting applications for our Independent Study program for kindergarten through grade 3 students for the 2017-18 school year. Students are eligible to enroll if they turn 5 by December 2, 2017.

Journey School’s Independent Study is a voluntary educational program that gives parents the opportunity to educate their child from home with professional guidance from a Waldorf-certified supervising teacher. Assignments, materials, and support are provided to assist parents with instruction to help ensure student success.

Additionally, our Independent Study program will be expanding in 2017-18 to include a hybrid kindergarten class. The home-based hybrid kindergarten will allow children to participate in cooperative outdoor activities 2-3 days a week.  During this time, students will engage in morning song, poetry, movement, nature walks, creative play, snack time, and story.

Journey School supports Independent Study families with monthly curriculum nights, a summer workshop, a resource library, access to other parents in the program and an experienced supervising teacher who is state credentialed and Waldorf certificated.

If you are interested in learning more about this program, adult-only Information Sessions will be offered on select dates through the end of the application window. Please contact Amanda Simmons at for more information.

The application deadline for the Independent Study program for the 2017-2018 School Year is Wednesday, May 3, 2017. The Independent Study Lottery will take place on May 10, 2017.
